“We have your contact number and will call you back,” “You are overqualified for the position,” “We like you, but the position does not fit you.”
Some usual lines we hear after an interview…Oh! Ouch!
It can be difficult to deal with refusal in your employment search, especially if it is the typical response to get a “no.” Furthermore, the struggle to find an employment right away and the endless twitching from friends and family will spiral into negativity.
The nice thing is that it’s rather better to be refused for a career than – let us say – for a marriage proposal to be declined. Nevertheless, the mechanism is well established.
The important thing is to be optimistic. The following tips are all but meaningless without this. Staying optimistic will save you time from apologizing and worrying.
Here are some helpful approach on dealing your job search rejection.
Know it’s par for the match.
Be resilient and strong. Be aware that some, while some more than others, have often encountered a refusal to work. But don’t beat yourself! Don’t beat yourself!
You have time on your hands if you’re a new professional. Don’t put too much pressure on you to get a job fast. There are also other options to make money these days, whether you have to earn immediately (depending on your industry of course). My advice: consider freelancing if the refusal extends over months. This will allow you to earn money when you are looking for a job.
This can get a little more complex if you’re not a new graduate. In the meantime, you probably have more credits every month. And your emergency fund could quickly run out if you are out of work.
First, evaluate your financial condition to determine how long your funds will last. Then, reduce expenses so that the funds are extended even further. This gives you enough space to get out of your rut. Finally, here is also my recommendation on freelancing. This keeps your mind primed and dedicated as you head through the interview tunnel again.
Don’t limit your prospects. Don’t limit your opportunities. Send applications for several jobs!
Don’t get fixed on a company, a career, or even a job. Care of the volume when it gets rough. The more applications you submit, the more opportunities you have to land.
Colleges do not determine the professional course in these days as well as in the past. Sitting is mixed and tough talent is the highest. Even if you have completed a journalism degree, that doesn’t mean you can’t go to a business. This also ensures you can work in the art and make a career out of it once you have completed a business degree.
The point is that maybe it is because you are so picky that you don’t land a “yes.” Expand your horizons to all your connections, whether you are friends, families, school contacts or even random posts on the internet.
Ask for suggestions, think about it, and enhance.
If you don’t get the job, most managers do not share input, this is real. However, the request for positive feedback is also not harmful. Following your interview and your denial, have the confidence to inquire why.
If they don’t answer, you can only think about what happened. During the interview, were you too abrasive? Do you forget your skills? Is your CV properly formatted? This will provide you with a deeper picture of your own branding strengths and weaknesses.
Don’t make excuses. This is not enough I can’t emphasize: don’t. Apology. You haven’t got the work and you haven’t got the job. The quicker you agree, the better you can concentrate on this sweet yes landing.
Concentrate on what you can do.
You should have prepared anything in the world and sent out all the career entries because you can’t get a job. You’re just unfortunate sometimes. It happens. It happens.
The worst thing you can do is let yourself be reached. Keep in mind that you can’t influence other situations. Even if you have all the correct qualifications to do the work, an employer preference is a difficult obstacle to tackle.
What you can control, however, is your strategy in further increasing your chances of getting hired. You can take online courses to get more skills, polish your interview skills, rewrite your resume, along with the aforementioned tips. There’s a lot you can do.
Establish a positive approach.
As I said, if you can’t get a good outlook, these tips are useless. If you are ambitious, you will transform any refusal into an opportunity to learn.
Keep in mind that the time is still coming. The main concern is whether you will be ready when the time comes. It’s just the first move to get recruited. When the time comes, you’ll think about all the refusals that you had to go through and concentrate on developing your future with a renewed focus.
